An overview of the significance of the correlations observed across the two thalamo-cortical projection systems under study using both MRI and histological cortical thickness values. Values in bold P < 0.05; otherwise P > 0.05. T = light transmittance. LGN = lateral geniculate nucleus; MDT = mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus; PFC = prefrontal cortex.
